Why have a collection of CVs/resumes as opposed to having just the one CV? By Matthew Coppola


There’s a saying “It’s good to keep your options open” and how true that is, especially when it comes to searching and applying for suitable employment.

Some job seekers opt to have a collection of different CVs that they can use in applying for work, and there are many reputable professional resume writers that can help with this.

Often, we find ourselves out of a job and not sure what to do. There are a few different roles, perhaps in related or completely different industries that we know, after reading through the employer’s requirements and selection criteria, that we can do the job. (By the way, if you do find a job that asks you to address a set of key selection criteria, Australian employment services firm Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions can provide assistance in addressing them for you. Learn more by clicking here.

And, if you find that the job description is fairly uninformative, there’s an article I have written on about how to deal with uninformative job descriptions.

In fact, having a one-page CV can be powerful too in terms of getting straight to the point about your knowledge and experience, as well as providing the employer with a brief page to read.

So, having multiple CVs for different jobs can be helpful because you can apply for more jobs and therefore increase your chances of gaining suitable employment. That’s right, you’re keeping the options open. The same goes for your cover letter.

And, once you secure a job interview then fantastic! The Australian company mentioned earlier – Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions – provide interview coaching and will teach you the techniques and skills to handle standard and behavioural type questions, personalised for you and your needs.

First impressions count!

The employer has read your resume. They want to hear you talk about your experience. 

Even though the explanation on your resume is descriptive and understandable, when answering this question, you are best to concentrate on what the position your applying for is about and miss all the unnecessary extra information.

It would be unwise to respond by stating everything that is already mentioned on your resume. You want to concentrate mostly on the parts of your current job that relate to the position you are going for.

You don’t want the employer to become uninterested in you.

When talking about your responsibilities and what your job involves, make it interesting and expand on what you do and how the tasks you perform relate to the overall purpose of the position.

Show enthusiasm and interest in what you do. It’s best not to come across uninterested even if you really don’t like what you do for work. Your attitude to work no matter what kind of job it may be, can reflect on you as a person and as a potential employee.
